Re: Sucks that the NCAA tournament is cancelled. USU worked so hard to get that auto-bid

Plot twist: SDSU Frank is 12 years old and you are all arguing with him.

Another thought: USU started the season preseason #1 and ended the season as #1

Only one team left standing at the end of this season in the MW: USU

Re: (SDSU/USU) whoever gets furthest in the NCAA tournament is the best team in the MWC

Once they cancel The Big Dance, the season will end with SDSU losing to Utah State.

I’m convinced that this SDSU Frank character is actually an Aggie fan having some fun with us. Nobody could really be this oblivious.

If we are going to complain about the officiating every game as the reason we lost, we should be consistent and credit the officials for the victory.

Re: USU up to 35 on Net Ratings after SJSU win

We moved up three spots over idle teams because we beat lowly SJSU? I know I've said it before, but I'm still not buying the NET's supposed cap on margin of victory at 10. Take, for example, when St. Mary's beat Arizona State by 40. They moved up from #64 to #36. I know it was only 12 games into th...

Re: How Ugly was this game?

1) We could have had a much larger lead with 8 minutes left had he come back into the game earlier. You assume that everything would have been the same with him in the game as without.

2) Points in the final 8 minutes are worth the same as points in any other part of the game.

Or we could have put Merrill back in much earlier in the 2nd half instead of guaranteeing that he wouldn't get much playing time. I never underst...

It really is amazing how dominant we were at home for a long stretch.
